Models turn to social media to share their stories of sexual harassment within the fashion indsutry

Models turn to social media to share their stories of sexual harassment within the fashion indsutry

Model Cameron Russell has joined in on the #MeToo campaign currently dominating social media to bring to light stories of model mistreatment within the fashion industry using her own hashtag #MyJobShouldNotIncludeAbuse.

Countless stories of coercion, harassment and assault have been shared by the model with male and females working within the industry (models and assistants, mostly) publicly and anonymously detailing their experiences with casting agents and photographers.

“Hearing about #harveyweinstein this week has sparked conversations about how widespread and how familiar his behaviour is,” Russell wrote on her Instagram feed before encouraging those in the fashion industry to share their stories with the #MyJobShouldNotIncludeAbuse hashtag “so the industry can see the size and scope of this problem”.

Other well-known models like Gemma Ward, Sara Sampaio (who shared her own story of coercion) and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley have shared the stories on their feeds to help spread the word and bring, they hope, an end to this abusive culture.

Russell’s efforts come as the LA Times published an investigation in Harvey Weinstein’s harassment of countless models, and publishing house Conde Nast banned any of their publications from working with photographer Terry Richardson.

“The voices breaking the silence are irreplaceable. I received too many stories to continue posting on my own, so I am passing on stories, with permission from those who shared, to be posted by friends and allies. Please follow and share your support as the anonymous stories of sexual harassment in our industry continue to be posted and brought to light,” Russell captioned her latest post, calling on her fellow models to continue to shed light on these harrowing and plentiful stories.
